Kidney Jing Deficiency TCM Pattern Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential approaches for kidney jing deficiency.

Kidney Jing Deficiency is one of many possible underlying factors from a TCM perspective for health issues such as acromegaly, alopecia, astigmatism, athetosis, cerebral palsy, forgetfulness, incontinence, infertility, menopause (hot flashes), miscarriages, osteoporosis, parkinson's disease (pd), and/or spermatorrhea.

The above issues are common examples. In clinical situations, however, there are any number of other possibilities. Many times there will be a layered combination of issues intermixed from a variety of causal patterns in TCM terms. While initially complex, this is illustrative of the the web of relationships that Chinese Medicine is designed to approach.

The current and historical array of issues and signs must be taken into consideration as well as the timing of the onset of each individual aspect.
